The site is a mix of public feed and groups (analogous to communities on G+) a bit token system linked to an e-currency allows the community to self-fund and content providers may be able to monetize their efforts. Some will find the token system disconcerting, but it is not mandatory for basic use of the site. There are hundreds of established groups of varying quality, just like on G+, or it is simple to set up a new community and wall out the barbarians. Content can be posted to a group OR publicly. All group posts appear in the public stream.
